Burnside Album Details
Plaza Musique, Accent LP
Championed by France's Bertrand Burgalat (Air, Ladytron) and produced by Xavier Paradis of Automelodi (formerly Echo Kitty), Montreal based Plaza Musique lies between sugary 80s French pop and seductive new wave synth pop, buttressed by lilting piano/harpischord fills and occasional orchestral maneuvers into 70s melodic Euro prog rock. Female vocalist Mimi Robillard conjures up a wistful blend of Kate Bush/Annie Haslam as she handles lyrics in English, French, and Italian. For Montreal scene watchers, that's ex-Stills Gregory L. Pacquet on guitars. Each vinyl EP comes with a download card to access mp3 versions of the 4 songs here. On the dance floor or in your headphones, Plaza Musique is forging new ground. These songs will not be on their new cd coming this fall.
